Above: Relatives of the Iraqi journalist who was sentenced to prison for having shown his shoes at then-U.S. “President” George W. Bush — in protest of the unelected Bush regime’s illegal, immoral, unjust and unprovoked invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq — protest before and after his sentence by the puppet government in Baghdad today. Below: A video grab of Bush ducking one of the Iraqi journalist’s shoes at a press conference with the leader of Iraq’s puppet government, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, in Baghdad in December. The Associated Press reports that a poll released today “found that 62 percent of Iraqis surveyed considered [the shoe-tossing journalist] a hero and only 24 percent considered him a criminal.”
Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the 30-year-old Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at then-U.S. “President” George W. Bush in protest during a press conference in Baghdad in December, has been sentenced to three years in prison by an Iraqi court for his defiant act of footwear hurling.
He should be set free.
George W. Bush is responsible for the wholly unnecessary deaths of thousands upon thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians and more than 4,250 members of the American military as the result of his unelected regime’s illegal, immoral, unprovoked and unjust Vietraq War, yet not only does Bush remain free — and he very most likely won’t spend as much as a single fucking day in jail — but American taxpayers will finance his fucking retirement.
There is no fucking justice in a world in which a man who throws his shoes at some murderous dictator (and misses!) spends three years in prison, but the murderous dictator remains at large.
The United States of America has no fucking grounds upon which to lecture any other nation on the topic of justice until and unless traitor and war criminal George W. Bush and his fellow treasonous war criminals are brought to justice.
